I don't get what you want me to listen to there?
Are you saying young people want everything to be kind and politically correct and that's why they don't like the Dead? I don't think that's quite it. My son loves the Stones and The Who. He thinks the Dead are too mellow. He wants to see guitars smashed etc. He says all the clueless stuff like "This song has no beat" ... He asks why Garcia "doesn't move" on stage.

By the time I was seeing them, 74-82, they didn't move much at all...check out the DVD, Last Days of the Fillmore from 71 to see Jerry relatively animated during a great JBGood, and then if I can find it, there's a great shot jgl and I discussed of them from 68 doing FBack with a clear indication of how "hard" they are working, moving up to and "onto" their amps/speakers...

Scratch my last post.
I did expect a bit more "animation" at the 11/71 Pauley Pav. show and recall feeling that the Dead were bored (or something). I remember more positively the NRPS, who opened the show.

Very good point, Mr. Tell. That I do remember that most about the show and every show after that, the latter not being at all important once the music sunk in.

Ah, don't be confused Diana, you've replied to a troll... Their typical method on here is to post a reply that looks on the surface like it makes sense, but turns out to be a random non-sequitur (often accompanied by an irrelevant link). When you've been here a while, you'll quickly be able to spot who the 'fakes' are & you can identify troll-replies at a glance....

Well, I don't know if someone is a troll since I don't know who anyone is anyway. I'm a bit lost ... there are definitely some posts where I can't figure out what the heck the link is about.

I get pretty confused myself at times.

the continual barrage of new usernames can definitely be confusing. the confusion usually clears after a few posts though.

gotta sift through the garbage to get the gold, i guess.

I was a fairly young lad when introduced and felt the same things. The band and the music surely wasn't promoting their testosterone level. At the time I was listening to James Gang, Cactus, The Who, Black Sabbath and other bands that weren't about "nuance" in their music.

It wasn't until I started listening to the Allman Bros. at the Fillmore East that I began picking up on the Dead and in particular the Skeleton & Roses album. To me, they were East and West Coast mirrors of one another. Shortly thereafter Eurpoe 72 was released, but I didn't think it held up as well as S&R's. However it did lead me back into Workingman's and Beauty. That linkage put me on the bus.

Someone once said, it's not about how fast or how loud or how many notes you can cram into a solo, it's about the silence between. Sometimes a young man just needs to age a little before his level of sophistication rises to meet those silent moments.

I think KRichards, whom we were discussing yesterday, made mention of this aspect, with which I heartily agree (the pauses/silence between notes being as important). This comes across quite amazingly in my fav versions of Loser or DDHNM, especially...

Oh, and I hope I don't find out that when you aren't Grover, you fill in as Dan Healy...whacking my dead horse straight out from under me. With Rob's (and newbie Diana's) encouragement, I am on the mend, regardless...

Quarterroll might be a disguised name Diana. Not sure but it sounds familiar.

My 12-year-old daughter got on the bus when she was 10. Loves the Dead. About a year ago she came home all excited to tell me about this other band she had just heard and thought they were really good. Wanted to tell me all about it. When I got home from work she asked me if I had ever heard of a band called Led Zepplin. She's a smart one for sure.

I remember the 12 year olds and bouncing on the rear. Once the bus hit a bump everyone when flying.

Maybe he was referencing the big band swing style as an influence to members of the band. Great radio broadcasts too.
